Toomey was asked if agreed with Republican colleague Sen. 丽莎·默科夫斯基, 阿拉斯加, who told the 安克雷奇每日新闻 that she wants Trump to step down.
“是啊, I do,” Toomey said. “I think at this point with just a few days left it’s the best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rearview mirror for us. That could happen immediately. I’m not optimistic it will, but I do think that would be the best way forward.”
Ten days before Trump’s term in office ends, there is a growing list of political figures calling for his ouster. 它的. 本·卡丹, D-Md。, has also said that resignation would be in “the best interest of America,” while Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois has called for Trump’s Cabinet to remove him via the 25th Amendment, which is meant for when a president is unable to carry out the duties of the office.
与此同时, 几乎 200 House Democrats are co-sponsoring an article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection” that is expected to be introduced in the House on Monday. Toomey has also said that the president “committed impeachable offenses.”
House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C。, 告诉 “福克斯新闻周日” that a vote on impeachment may take place as early as Tuesday.
